Our Korean Superstar Jin recently took 2 protos of the CrossBow 2 tent on his recent summit of Mt. Yariga-Take in the Japan North Alps. Here are some photos and feedback from his trip.
Performance wise, these two tents were OUTSTANDING with proper setup.
o There was very strong wind all through the night on top of the Mt. Yariga-Take because of typhoon but both tents performed well with no issue at all.
o There is no question that CrossBow2 tent is very strong with trekking pole setup but even with wing pole setup (supposed to be weakest setup), I didn’t see any issue even under typhoon, if setup properly (proper pitching and guying)
Light Weight Tents! Love it!
o Both tent were light (2.1kg and 2.5kg)! That’s really good weight as strong double wall tent that we can actually use for 4 seasons!
o All the mesh pockets inside were VERY useful as always!
o Tent body provided me more than enough space for solo climbing with very comfortable headroom as well
o Vestibule provided me big space to hold 2x100L back-packs. Great!
